|Sarah (the bride-to-be) and me|
Anyway, the shower was nice. I did really well with the food--it was a buffet, and I took very tiny portions. I had a chicken thigh, a tiny scoop of mashed potatoes, some green beans, half a roll, and half a salad. I was excited to eat cake until I realized that it was the kind of frosting I don't like. I LOVE LOVE LOVE buttercream frosting--the kind that makes your teeth feel like they are rotting as you eat, because it's loaded with sugar crystals. Anyway, this was that whipped stuff that tastes kind of like whipped cream, and not very sweet. So I actually passed up the cake! But I totally made up for that with a handful of chocolate chips when I got home, haha.
I worked out this morning before I got ready for the shower. I did 3 miles on the dreadmill. I found some treadmill programs online and printed them out, then posted them next to the treadmill. Here is the one I did this morning:
Someone asked about the drink mix I was talking about yesterday... here is what it looks like:
this website where you can order something similar, but you pay a small fortune. These things at Target were $1.84 for 10 packets. Easy to tuck in your purse! Like I said, I ordered a Tequila & water on ice, and then I just dumped a packet in the drink.
I've been doing well with my Summer Challenge, with the exception of my weekly goal. I picked a terrible week to count calories every day. I had the bachelorette party Friday, the shower today, and Sarah & and fiance are coming over tonight, and then we're going out to dinner with them early next week. But I've been working out a lot and definitely eating as well as I can!
